Our Heritage

Industrial Radiator owner Chad Spence has been in the radiator repair industry his entire life. He carries on a proud legacy of service and hard work that began with his grandfather, Lee Wes Spence II. Lee began his career as a salesman for Daniel Radiator in the 1950s. He learned and labored and eventually founded his own automotive radiator repair shop in California. Always the savvy entrepreneur, Lee soon recognized an opportunity to serve industrial operators. That shift sparked a trade which has evolved and strengthened over multiple generations.

Lee Spence had three sons, Wes, Bruce and Mark. They immersed themselves in the industry Lee had entered and they developed their own knowledge and skills servicing industrial cooling systems, heat exchangers and other heavy equipment. Mark Spence is Chad’s father, and he instilled a tireless work ethic, a wealth of experience and hard-learned lessons to his eldest son, Chad, over the course of a nearly three decades-long collaboration between the two men.

Today, Chad Spence carries the legacy of nearly 70 years of success in radiator repair service forward into its next phase. He founded Industrial Radiator Service with a grateful eye to the past and an excitement for the future of the trade he loves. Like his father and grandfather before him, Chad aims to be the best at what he does and to leave a legacy through Industrial Radiator that his children will be proud of.
